Abstract:

The report summarizes the feasibility study performed for AFRLAOARD regarding the use of Random Finite Set RFS filtering approach for tracking orbital space debris. Specifically, we investigate the capability of the RFS approach to accommodate nonlinear motion and measurement models unknown and time varying target number and limited sensor field-of-view. This report shows the capability of the random finite set approach to provide large scale multi-target tracking. In particular it is shown that an approximate filter known as the labeled multi-Bernoulli filter can simultaneously track one thousand five hundred targets in clutter on a standard laptop computer.
